About The Play:
Civil Blood: A Treaty Story explores the complex tensions between First Nations and the European Settlers at the end of the fur trade. Among tension and treaties, two star-crossed lovers, two young people: a Nehiyaw huntress and a French scholar discover a passion for one another. Through the mounting unrest that surrounds them, they seek their own bountiful unity. Tensions are high. The fur trade is collapsing, settlers are encroaching into the territories of the First Nations, and the newly founded Canadian government is attempting to define itself through law and order. Tribes are suffering from scarcity of food, destroyed hunting grounds, starvation, and the ever-burdensome whiskey.
